Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

Well that was a strange game. After a terrible start, Leinster came back from 16-0 down to absolutely blow Connacht off the park. Now they face an Ulster side who lost both their opening two Rainbow Cup fixtures to Connacht and Ulster. Quite where that leaves them in the table is anyone's guess.

Well that was grimly familiar.

Once again this Leinster team failed to deliver when they came up against a bigger pack which bullied them off the park. They started brightly enough and wasted a couple of decent chances in the first half that could have had them further ahead. But while there was a lot of focus on the La Rochelle attack in the build-up, we should probably have focused on their defence which is the meanest in the Top14.

Well Munster really, really enjoyed that! Like ... to an almost embarrassing level.

Down to their 4th/5th choices half-backs, Leinster were woefully out-matched in that most crucial area and frankly there would be something seriously wrong with Munster first choice halfbacks if they weren't. Yes the pack and the outside backs named were of a better level and will be disappointed with their performance but if your halfbacks aren't firing, there's only going to be one winner.

Not this lot again!!!

For what feels like the tenth time this season, it's Leinster versus bloody Munster!!

Actually it's only the third time this season that Leinster and Munster will play each other but it feels like a lot, lot more.

That was a let down!

Leinster Rugby versus RC Toulon was going to kick-off the long Easter weekend and I'm sure I wasn't the only Leinster fan to have made special arrangements to be ready to watch the game at the early 5:30pm kick-off. Instead we had to make do with London Irish versus Cardiff in the Challenge Cup (which did turn out to be a bit of a classic in fairness complete with a late Sean O'Brien cameo). The positive COVID-19 test which led to Toulon effectively conceding the game was unfortunate and it leaves a sour taste in everyone's mouth. It's a horrible way to lose a game but also not a great way to win either. But unfortunately these are the times we're living in and you just hope that the remaining seven fixtures are won and lost on the pitch.
